Democratic challenger for Georgia’s gubernatorial race Stacey Abrams officially acknowledged her defeat to Republican Brian Kemp Friday night; refusing to concede and claiming “Democracy failed in Georgia.”
“So let’s be clear – this is not a speech of concession, because concession means to acknowledge an action is right, true or proper,” she said. “As a woman of conscience and faith, I cannot concede that. But, my assessment is the law currently allows no further viable remedy. Now, I can certainly bring a new case to keep this one contest alive, but I don’t want to hold public office if I need to scheme my way into the post. Because the title of governor isn’t nearly as important as our shared title – voters. And that is why we fight on.”
“Under the watch of the now former secretary of state, democracy failed Georgia,” she added.
